A British daredevil couple are now the proud parents of the youngest person to reach the summit of a 3,300-metre tall mountain unaided when the family scaled the treacherous peak.

Seven-year-old Freya Houlding climbed Piz Badile, a mountain located on the border of Switzerland and Italy, accompanied by her mom, Jessica, 41, and dad, Leo Houlding, 40, a professional climber.

The adventure took a mere three days to achieve.

Freya’s three-year-old brother, Jackson, was brought up the peak by his grandfather, while pops carried their supplies.

The Houlding family began its ascent on July 25.

Their journey involved spending one night in an alpine hut and another two in temporary campsites known as bivouacs.

The family reached the summit on the third day of hiking.

In 2004, British climbers Jules Cartwright, 29, and Julie Colver, 43, fell to their deaths while descending Piz Badile.
